Hi all,

Just for information, I have committed code that will allow TORQUE to 
use munge to authorize user access as an alternative to the privileged 
port/ruserok mechanism that is the default.

Currently the munge authorization is a compile time option. To enable it 
use ./configure --enable-munge-auth. If munge is installed on your 
installation then all utilities and the server will automatically use 
munge to verify users.

Authorized remote users must be added using the qmgr utility. The server 
parameter is /authorized_users/.

To add a user named fred at hosta use the following qmgr command.

qmgr -c 'set server authorized_users=fred at hosta'

Additional users can be added using += <user>@<host>.

For information on how to install munge see http://code.google.com/p/munge/.

If you try this let me know how it goes. I welcome any feedback.
